Because I'm Batman

The Raven Boys - Maggie Stiefvater

Curiouser and curiouser. I felt a little like Alice reading this book. It never seemed to go quite where expected and sort of meandered about. Still, it kept me curious enough to continue, despite not really caring about any of the characters.


I grew particularly tired of Adam's "loner" mentality. For a smart kid, he was exasperatingly dumb. It's not about being owned; it's about being practical and, if necessary, manipulative ... which was why his rant against Gansey after his unfortunate injury irked me, because everything he said was true. It was his own bloomin' fault. Blue was decent enough, and Noah faded to the background too much to bother, but Gansey and Ronan also came across as a tad two-dimensional.


Still, generally enjoyed the story and curious enough to check out the next book, but hoping it meanders less and doesn't dive from somewhat everyday life into a sudden, magical ending. Also hoping for more answers. :)
